the extension of, i guess, the next big challenge of the congress is what? the debt ceiling? >> debt ceiling. it's a continuing resolution. i guess that's been passed. >> already passed. >> the debt ceiling, which i think was anticnated august or september, last week, i haven't checked all of the details. the last time i checked in with this, way back when the republican senators had dinner with president obama,ists told that they didn't expect the debt ceiling issue to come to a head until august or september. so, they've kind of kicked the can down on the road on that one. it will be awhile. i suspects on the budget that will be the next big thing. >> one more time. you may have missed a few if you were out of town but michelle bachman gave a controversial speech at cpac where she went after the president for living a life of luxury in the white house including the fact that he had, you know, six-figured dog walker, dana bash from cnn tried to chase down michelle bachman. she had to chase her down running, michelle bachman running away. we will play a quick cli
is killing 87 americans a day? not the debt ceiling? it's gun violence, and it's unrestricted access to guns by criminals and the mentally ill, thanks to the capitol managements and the nras of the world who are arming criminals and -- and controlling our hard-fought democracy. we have got to take your democracy back. there are way more of us than there are of those lunatics in the nra, and their benefactors in the gun industry. but we have to hold our congress people accountable. >> michael: it seems, john noot to sort of douse your flames on this, it seems like they are calling. thanks goodness there is bloomberg to counter these people for the first time. isn't the moment going away now? i know we said that about gabby giffords, and i thought that was going to be the moment and it clearly wasn't, now i thought this was a no-brainer. what has to happen? >> i'm afraid something far worse than newtown. as we get further and further away from newtown, we're seeing even the democrats in the senate shy away from assault weapons and ammunition clips, there were 20 be
. the debt ceiling. so we only have one out-perform rating right now, which is technology. that's been a long-standing outperform for us. one underperform was consumer discretionary which is the potential for problems because of the tax increases. it turns out it's not having the impact on consumer spending as a lot of people thought. >> great advice. thank you so much. great to you on the prom. liz ann sonders and heidi moore joining me. up next, we're on the money. what is starbucks' recipe for success? my conversation with the company's founder and ceo about how he wants to do for tea what he has done for coffee. >>> and how health care may not be so healthy a business. >>> and later, talking tough on the smartphone market. can a new phone from a glass economy not so far away take a bite out of apple? what innovation means for your personal technology use, as we take a look at how the stock market ended for the week. back in a moment.

the debt ceiling. he's drawn comparisons to joe mccarthy. john mccain even called him a wacko bird. but cruz says things are just going great. he told the dallas morning news, "if you look at the vote on sequester, the filibuster on drone strikes and the vote on defunding obama car, republicans have stood together for principle. and in doing so, i believe we are winning the argument." with that kind of fuzzy logic, it's no wonder the americans are running away from the party. 27% of americans can identify as republicans. that's the lowest since the beginning of 2010. and only 33% have a favorable view of the gop. but senator cruz thinks republicans are winning the argument? yikes. maybe the effort to reboot the party is just a lost cause. joining me now, ryan grim and jamal simmons. ryan, do tea party republicans really think they are winning the argument here or are they just avoiding reality as long as possible? >> well, a lot of tea party republicans don't think that the other side has an even remotely legitimate argument to bring to the table. so they think they are practically
proposed by obama almost like a parliamentary party was not reworded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was not reworded. calling the obama health care plan, which was their own only a few years earlier, socialism was not reworded. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves, and importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition so that was an important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems, but there is going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice with one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> too familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norman borkenstein it's even worse than it looks. this is book tv on c-span2. >>> next, we hear from dina hampton in her book little red she profiles the graduates of the little red schoolhouse and elizabeth warren high school of new york city some ominous with progressive politics. this is about half an hour.

was that the senate democrats had to pass a budget in order to get a debt ceiling increase. they'll pass a budget. the house passed a budget. in theory what they're supposed to do is reconcile the two of them, come up with a compromise and make that budget the law. that's not going to happen, this was the end. this bill is going to die and there's no implication for keystone, excel, abortion or anything else. it's symbolic. >> quoting myself, it's a statement of priorities. and the fact that the republicans are still trying to litigate the issue of the affordable care act, still talking about contraception, still talking about a woman's right to choose, it's a testament, those are not winning issues for the republican party. i want to talk to you, josh, you have a great column in bloomberg view, talking about republicans and their deficit amnesia. michael writes in the "daily beast," the gop is advancing three crucial lies, that we have to balance the budget, that public investment at this point is irresponsible and that if we do slash spending and balance the budget, jobs will come. it's all non
over the debt ceiling debate, over europe. and then a new high. i do see the s&p going to 1600 this year. probably this summer. >> really? >> then i see growing chances of a major correction that may take a couple years or may take several years. but it's clear to me u.s. demographics only get worse. we're running $2 trillion. fiscal stimulus. in qe a year to create $300 billion in gdp growth. 2% growth. that's a bad equation. >> nathan, why don't you pick it up. part of harry's argument seems to make sense. he is looking for 1600 in the s&p at some point. change your view at all? >> yeah, i know. harry has been calling for the world to come to an end for a long time. i brought my umbrella. >> what are you, mary poppins? >> i'm going to take off. look, the fact of the matter is we are actually having good news. it's hard for some people to say, really, there's fwood news? you pump $4 trillion in. you don't have the fed pulling its money out which it's not going to do any time soon. you've got to take a look at facts on the ground. we've got $900 billion sitting in money market

't and jumped out at me. one of the things we heard going back to the debt ceiling negotiations in the summer of 2011, john boehner saying in effect the president played loosesy and -- lucy and yanked football and was not keeping his word on obligations he said he would undertake. i wonder if joe biden going back to offer a at this time for at that time argument? would be interesting to for reporters would follow up. what were the five occasions? what were the specific deals and how did republicans back out at them? bill: what date did it happen and what did republicans supposedly promise you and how did they renege on that. >> right. bill: here is john boehner, 10 days ago, similar topic here. listen to the speaker. >> republicans want to balance the budget. the president doesn't. republicans want to solve our long-term debt problem. the president doesn't. we want to unlock our energy resources to put more americans back to work. the president doesn't. bill: he also said it will take more than dinner dates and phone calls. and that goes back to your point about the charm offensive. like, wha
're trying to figure out their way out of sequestration to the next crisis, which is the debt ceiling limit and a budget. let's face it, the president as a matter of law, budget october of 1974 requires the president to deliver a budget on or before february 1st, where is the budget. not the republicans problem. we are supposed to act off the president's budget that never arrived. >> megyn: i want to ask you, julie, you mentioned something interesting about how this is aimed towards recapturing the house of representatives in the next mid term election, 2014, and no biden did say, please, please work hard to elect 17 new house democrats. now, that's a serious longshot, it's a hail mary, and i'm not saying it can't hop, but this would be-- >> yeah, but so, that seems to be, the pundits came out and told us that's what president obama was aiming for with the charm offensive speaking to the american people, we're reasonable we can get things done. go with the democrats. and again, why would joe biden not just be going with that for now, knowing there are reporters sitting there, who are going
a discussion on the lifting of the debt ceiling, some of the republicans who were there, actually walked out of the room. this year we didn't have that. so, you know, people were more willing to listen, but i think that the extreme wing of the tea party typically does not attend the harvard new members conference this. [laughter] in my experience. >> jessica mathews. among economists, is there significant debate about your estimate, your five to $6 trillion estimate, are you still -- what are the key issues that if we were in a roomful if economists we would be tangling with you about? >> well, that's a great question. i think that, you know, the original estimate when we had the original estimate 3 trillion, came back to his sort of early on from a former student of mine who was working in the administration and he was a brilliant student, fairly senior job at omb. he called me and he said i've been tasked with setting up a committee to scrutinize all the numbers in your book, and to discredit them. i just want to let you know that. and i said, okay. fine. and he came back to the six months
